Perez-Garcia, Lluisa

Anne McLaren Research Fellow

University of Nottingham, UK


My current interests are mainly in the field of nanobiomedicine, and include the use of metallic and inorganic nanoparticles as well as supramolecular hydrogels for drug delivery of anticancer agents, especially photosensitizers for photodynamic therapy. Also, the bio-functionalization of silicon microparticles to study, individually tag and actuate inside living cells (multiplexing materials). I was appointed as an Anne McLaren Research fellow in September 2017.
